Installation of Chains

Van Doren Waxter presented Doug Young’s wooden sculptures “Chains” in the architectural niches of their lobby. Each sculpture utilized 3 sections of 35-foot chains of hand-carved Eastern pine assembled into seamless chains. The dramatic scale and the re-contextualization of these industrial links within a domestic space promoted a tension between the natural and manmade worlds, and a sense of awe in regards to man’s technological prowess over nature.
On view from September 14, 2016 to January 7, 2017.

by Bradley Spinelli, November 15, 2016

It was an oddly apropos time to be thinking about “high” art and “low” art, which is what artist Doug Young and I discussed at the Van Doren Waxter Gallery uptown just a few days before the all-consuming presidential election.
